Game of Thrones Inspired Wedding in Iceland

Italian Monica and British Ben absolutely adore Game of Thrones so when they came to marry there was only one place they wanted to do it – Iceland! Their ceremony was held in Thingvellir National Park, at the Silfra (the rift between two continental tectonic plates) which is actually the entrance to the Eyrie in the show.

“We are both fans of Game of Thrones and very much into fantasy”, Monica explained. “In fact we are so much into Game of Thrones that 1) Our two cats are called Tyrion and Shae 2)  Our first trip to Iceland was a GoT tour in the northern part of the country and 3) Ben proposed to me there, near a frozen lake surrounded by ravens. This made Iceland very special to us and the perfect setting for our wedding. We also appreciate the liberal nature of Icelanders, and their open-minded view of love and marriage.”

Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings Inspired Castle Wedding

Kat and Matt wanted anything but a traditional wedding. They started the day by having their ceremony at Old Wardour Castle in Salisbury. “The inspiration for the wedding was everything we enjoy: computer games, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, swords, horses, cats, dragons and castles!”, said the bride. “We love looking around castles and historical sites, so finding a ruined castle licensed for weddings was amazingly perfect!”

“The inspiration evolved throughout planning and it got more adventurous as we went on. The clincher was Matt asking if I would arrive on horseback, something which I had dreamed of but initially dismissed as way too risky and over the top. Our friend Heather spent at least a day bathing her lovely horse Millie and let her be my horsey bridesmaid. I think it was the icing on a rather eccentric cake…. Oh and the swords! I had ‘Longclaw’ Jon Snow’s sword from Game of Thrones and Matt had ‘Narsil’ from Lord of the Rings!”

Nordic and Game of Thrones Wedding

I have to admit that I’ve never actually watched an episode of Game of Thrones myself, but I knew as soon as I saw Laura and Paul’s June wedding that I had to share it! They were married at Meols Hall in Churchtown.

“The inspiration for the wedding was a mix of a number of concepts”, explained Laura. “I would describe my personal style as ‘contemporary Nordic’ so I love furs, antlers, skulls, slate and wood. I think that one of the main things that made our wedding unique was ‘Dave’ our deer head. Paul and I have a number of animal skulls in our house but Dave is one of our favourites so the wedding wouldn’t have been the same without him!”
